hey there,

I just got a new amp.
it's a half stack, but when I turn it on there's a lot of noise.
even if I only turn the chrunch/gain to 2. and the volume to 5.
I even hear more noise than my guitar playing.
except when I put the volume on 10 and the gain on like 5, because then it is
so laud that you just can't hear the noise.
do you guys know why this is, and what I can do about it?

thanks already, Farether

more like a hissing noise, I just called the shop.
they thought it's probably the tube in the pre-amp?

It might be to do with grounding or something in your house. Try unplugging things like TVs, computers, radios etc. whilst you're using it. Also, try some different cables - it could be to do with that.

Well, either check the guitar kramer see if anythings loose, check the cord and see if its firmly in and if thats messed up.

Dude. I had the same problem but it's quite an old amp (Starfire Mega-10 or something) that got given to me but that's besides the point. I just sprayed some compressed air into the tube and it was fine.
Punctuation it the difference between:
"I help my Uncle Jack off a horse."
and
"i helped my uncle jack off a horse"
